Summary: The array of plastic peripherals needed for Guitar Hero or Rock Band is already confusing enough. Music game-makers have wisely avoided tossing new instruments into the fray, despite repeated requests from dedicated fans (hello, keytar!). Activision is taking a calculated risk with DJ Hero by applying the same formula that worked for guitars, basses and drums -- capturing the essence of a musical instrument and mapping it to a runway with notes -- to a turntable.
Pros: The best soundtrack in a music game yet, You get to play as Daft Punk in their virtual spaceship, At its best, you honestly feel like an amateur DJ
Cons: Coming to grips with the touchy crossfader, Interface does a poor job informing players of mistakes, Tacked on integration with Guitar Hero
